Kellyanne Conway is no stranger to speaking the truth, and she won’t stop now!
On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence attended the Indianapolis Colts game. However, he left early, and then tweeted about how he would not stay after the Colts disrespect the national anthem.
I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.

Of course liberals, and even some Conservatives, began to bash Pence and say that he simply did it as a political stunt. Now Kellyanne Conway is speaking out, and says it is “egregious” for them to talk about Pence that way.
Some Democrats have accused Pence of wasting taxpayer dollars by traveling to the game so he could make a point by leaving early.
49ers safety Eric Reid dismissed Pence’s actions as a “PR stunt,” explaining that he probably knew the team has the largest contingent of anthem kneelers.
Conway, senior counselor to President Trump, said the event was “on the books” in advance and the former Indiana governor is not someone who would pull a stunt.
Conway said, “I’ve known him and Mrs. Pence for 20 years. It takes a lot to get that man’s blood boiling. … To call that a political stunt is truly outrageous, egregious and offensive.”
It is no secret that Pence takes things seriously. Why would he treat this any differently? Even when he was the governor of Indiana, he would help the grieving families of U.S. soldiers killed receive the remains of the fallen heroes.
Conway added, “Those coffins are always draped in a flag.”
We stand for the flag because of those who have fallen for it.
She concluded, “Let’s talk about, especially to our children, what the flag means. … The flag is the most cohesive, unifying symbol in our nation.”
